Today’s lead image is an early-1960s view to the south looking down North Central Avenue at the intersection of the roadway and Grand Avenue located in West Duluth, Minnesota. On the far-left of the photo is Ray’s 66 Service and Three-Minute Car Wash. On the far-right of the picture is a Standard Oil gasoline station with one service bay. Also of interest is the car and truck traffic on both Avenues.
A recent street view of the intersection shows that everything has changed except the buildings on the left-hand side past the railroad tracks that used to cross North Central. Share with us what you find of interest in the photograph courtesy of the University of Minnesota.
